Yes there is. And very painstakingly so. Like when we (a LIR that exists since 1993 under the same identity) had to sign a new service contract, the NCC wanted to get a copy of the legal document that proves our existence. Again within the framework of PI stuff. Interestingly enough, a university that was established in the 14th century does not have an entry in the current business register. Also, a publicly funded university in our little country is not a regular legal entity, but exists due to a law passed by national parliament. Even a reference to the official website of our government, offering the auhoritative version of the law, was not enough. I had to print the respective law, have it signed by a ministry rep. and have it scanned and shipped to Amsterdam. So, yes checks are made, regularly. But if you succeed in forging that type of documents, or if you succeed to get some "official entity" to help in doing that, the NCC is at the loosing end of the stick :-( Wilfried.
